1. Nigel Slater: Real Food

By Nigel Slater
Published by Fourth Estate, New Ed edition, 2000

I love this classic and in my 20s, it kicked off a real passion for cooking. It covers Slater's indispensable signature dishes, such as mackerel dauphinoise, sticky chicken wings and a whole chapter devoted to chocolate. Even though it was written over 15 years ago, the recipes are still accessible today and I think it turned us all into a nation of food lovers. It changed my Saturday mornings forever.
